I am interested in the Advanced CPhT courses but it looks as though there is a prerequisite of having experience in each of the certification areas. For the past 5 years, I have been training a hospital's EHR system and do not have extensive experience.

Where am I?

For the experience, it is hard to say without knowing exactly what your function and workings are within your hospital's electronic-health-record system.  I would look over the Mediation History Certificate requirements (maybe too with your supervisor) to see how applicable your experience may be.  As for gaining some further knowledge in preparing for this test, here is a link to the programs that offer a course related to this certificate (located under the EDUCATIONAL REQUIREMENT section):
