Do Marines have an Airborne School simular (if not the same) as the Army?

Unless things have changed pretty recently, the USMC uses the Army's BAC (please correct me if I'm wrong, if someone has some experience here).

Redneck is correct, Marines attend US Army BAC.

Yes, Jason, "Airborne School" and "Jump school" are the same.

Though I think, after five jumps, they get gold wings.

To be brief: 10 jumps in total and in a jump billet to earn gold wings.
