I am presenting two courses in D.C. in June organized by Insightful Corporation.  These courses have hands-on workshops and have received excellent reviews from past participants (let me know if you want to see the reviews from last year's courses).
S-Plus for Statistical Data Analysis and Graphics: June 19-21

This course covers data manipulation and overviews the use of S-Plus for bootstrapping, simulation, and sample size/power calculations.  General elements of constructing good graphics are covered, and exploratory data analysis and Trellis graphics are emphasized.  Many functions from the Hmisc library are covered.  For a full course description see http://www.insightful.com/services/course.asp?CID=26
Regression Modeling Strategies: June 24-26

This course emphasizes statistical modeling methodology from my book Regression Modeling Strategies (Springer, 2001) and has workshops using the Design library.
Some of the key topics covered are how and where to "spend" degrees of freedom, data reduction, multiple imputation of missing predictor variables, relaxing nonlinearity assumptions, hazards of stepwise variable selection, handling interactions, model validation, and graphically displaying complex regression models.  A full course description may be found at http://www.insightful.com/services/course.asp?CID=27
