As part of an ongoing series, the CNN Underscored team showcases outstanding deals you can shop right now in the CNN Store. Each week, we feature a product we think you'll love. This week, we're highlighting the Virtual Training Company Lifetime Subscription ($89, originally $2,500; store.cnn.com).

Maybe when you were in college, your alma mater wasn't offering classes in popular tech subjects, like game design or development. Or maybe you just didn't have time in your schedule to take classes that were outside your degree requirements. Or perhaps now you're looking for a way to diversify your resume with classes that will teach you the ins and outs of key business topics like project management.

Going back to school, where you might have to pay hundreds or thousands of dollars in tuition fees, may not be the right solution for everyone.

If you're looking for that variety of coursework, and you want to bolster your resume with some noteworthy classes, consider becoming a virtual student. The Virtual Training Company's Lifetime Subscription ($89, originally $2,500; store.cnn.com) is a solid option if you're going this route. This subscription offers 1,026 courses across 15 fields, from 3-D animation, to Internet and Web design, to business applications. Many of them are taught by industry experts. With the subscription, you'll also be able to download work files to supplement your online studies, and you'll be able to access classes on laptops, tablets and your mobile devices.

And you're getting a lifetime subscription, meaning you can learn about a variety of topics on your own pace.

Some of the highlights of the coursework include learning about graphics and page layouts, multimedia and video studies, networking and security, operating systems and programming.

Thanks to the variety of topics and the flexibility of the training subscription, this is a solid option for those who want to learn as much as possible, without actually having to sit in a traditional classroom setting. But the real selling point: From now until June 10, the Virtual Training Company Lifetime Subscription is just $89, a fraction of its original $2,500 price tag.
