A dual qualified coach is someone who holds both Coach Bowls and EBCS qualifications. This maybe Levels 1 and/or 2 in each code or level 1 in one code and level 2 in the other. . The advantage of being dual qualiified is that you can take the best practices and teaching from each code and use them to better your coaching.
