HackerRank has a decent course: https://www.hackerrank.com/domains/regex

 

And there are some decent online tools like https://regexr.com and https://regex101.com

 

I would also suggest trial and error especially in the Formula tool using REGEX_Replace and REGEX_Match functions to allow for immediate feedback (something lacking in the Regex Tool).

I agree with @jdunkerley79  trial and error is the best way to learn and this is how I know what I know. Search on the community for regex problems and try and solve them yourself.

 

I believe Alteryx uses Pearl Reg Ex so regexplanet.com has a tester that could help.
