Internally, we did an "R Programming Study Group" using Thomas Lumley's excellent slides

http://faculty.washington.edu/tlumley/Rcourse/

over 2 1/2 weeks. Individual success depended on individual motivation. The couple of folks that needed to come up to speed quickly did so.

I broke Thomas's course into 7 sections. Assigned sections every other day (Mon, Wed, Fri, ...). We used our internal wiki to exchange questions, commnts, hints, etc.

Our need was really R programming. If your needs are more statistical focused, you could use one of introductory texts.
