Epic medical record

just started a new job as Ma. I have been an MA for over five years. The last place I worked the doctor was not yet using the epic medical record.
So, this new job does use the epic medical record. I have been there two weeks and there are still a lot I don't know how to do. They did offer training but for only one day and a half. I get real nervous because I don't know how to navigate for instance ordering labs, placing a message, making an appointment for bone density, mammo. Calling patients back etc.
Is anyone else having the same problem? does anyone know how I can get the software to practice at home...I am really flustered, frustrated and struggling.....
