I went back to school this year to take a Post Graduate studies course on Visual Effects and Editing at Fanshawe College.
Some of the software I learned included Adobe AfterEffects, Nuke, Cinema 4D, Davinci, Avid Media Composer, Final Cut Pro, Adobe Premiere, Compressor and Shotput.
I certainly learned a lot:

Cinema 4D Camera Calibration
Light wrapping in Nuke & After Effects
Painting Camera Tracked Projections
