Thanks for your electrical question Chris. If you wish to convert the switching from one switch to two three-way switches then a 3-wire cable will need to be installed between the two three-way switch locations. There are wiring diagrams in this website that show this wiring configuration, just follow the link below to the Wiring Diagrams location.

The Safest Way to Test Electrical Devices and Identify Electric Wiring!The Non-Contact Electrical Tester
This is a testing tool that I have had in my personal electrical tool pouch for years, and is the first test tool I grab to help identify electrical wiring. It is a Non-contact tester, [amazon.com], I use for the detection of Standard Voltage in Cables, Cords, Circuit Breakers, Lighting Fixtures, Switches, Outlets and Wires. Simply insert the end of the tester into an outlet, lamp socket, or hold the end of the tester against the wire you wish to test. Very handy and easy to use.
