Successfully completing a domestic-violence education program netted Chris Brown a pretty snazzy certificate.

The rejuvenated R&B star showed off his diploma via Twitter on Monday, nearly two years after he was arrested for assaulting then-girlfriend Rihanna. According to the calligraphied paperwork, the course lasted 52 weeks.

"I'm done with class," he wrote.

Brown, who's nominated for three Grammys this year, including Best Contemporary R&B Album for Graffiti, also received a glowing progress report last month from a Los Angeles judge who called his ongoing rehabilitation "commendable."

He was sentenced last summer to five years' probation, 180 days of community labor and a year-long domestic-violence program.

"Out of thousands of probationers, no one has done a better or more consistent job than you have, and I really want to commend you for taking responsibility and for actually working diligently to complete all the things the court has required of you," said L.A. Superior Court Judge Patricia Schnegg.

Just think of what she'll say once he shows her his shiny new certificate!
