It is hard to tell exactly when one has progressed over to the advanced level, or exactly when one should be practicing advanced materials. I hope that at this point you have fully embraced playing the piano as a lifestyle and not a chore; therefore, you are no longer obsessed with skill levels and impressing your friends, but instead, driven by self-improvement and making good music.
It is this realization and revelation you'll know you're ready to progress to the advanced materials. Throughout the beginner and intermediate level, you have developed the patience and discipline needed by doing the work even though it was hard and tedious at times.

Being an advanced player is about making good music by using the tools (theory, technique, chords and scales vocabulary) that you would've developed in the previous levels. So, take time to learn and improve your skills with the beginner and intermediate materials before taking on the advanced courses.
