Adobe Creative Suite & Flash training

A colleague and I are looking for suitable training resources (computer-based or off-site) in Adobe Creative Suite.  We mainly use Photoshop, InDesign, and Dreamweaver, but would like to start utilizing AfterEffects, Premiere, and the rest of the suite, and are particularly interested in learning Flash.

Anyone have any recommendations for really effective, yet affordable, training to help use leverage our software investment?

Thanks.

Thanks Madkhali and CyanBlue.

Each of these sites offers various training bundles, video series, and/or free tutorials.
Were there specific products or video libraries that you found especially helpful?

Also, are there "subscriptions" you can purchase so that you can pick and choose a la carte whenever/whatever you want to download and learn?

The Adobe "Classroom in a Book" series does a pretty good job: http://www.amazon.com/Adobe-Flash-Professional-Classroom-Book/dp/0321499824

for full theory and practice "classroom in a book"is the best choice by far. alternatively for almost entirely practice with very little foundation or theory, lynda.com is great but leaves the user feeling less confident in a development environment.
