Merci, Johanna - and all others who responded. I can always count on my IDL confreres to help out.
As Johanna said, I will try to turn it into a conversation and mention both while making it clear that I (now) know the difference.

Wow that's tricky.  I've only heard of the Kirkpatrick model.  If I had to
guess, I'd say it was a voice-to-text typo.

On the other hand, there are alternatives to Kirkpatrick so perhaps you
could just go with what you know.  That is, when they ask about Firtz, tell
them what you know about Kirk and then open a conversation. The requirement
seems to be asking for a knowledge of training evaluation, so whatever
model you are familiar with should do the trick.  Besides knowing the
model, they probably want your ideas/experience with how to implement it.

Here's an interesting article looking at alternatives.

Good luck!
